293 cards have been catalogued in the gorgeous JF 27b Nippon Ham Sausage card set to date. (We surmise that there may actually be 300 cards in the set). The set depicts all the top Japan Pro Baseball players of the era. Of those 293 known cards, 19 of them feature Sadaharu Oh. This fact is not surprising considering that 1977 was the year that Oh exceeded Hank Aaron's lifetime home run total to become the world's all time greatest slugger. This card is one of three in which Oh is captured in his patented flamingo batting stance.

Due to their great popularity in Japan, Nippon Ham Sausage cards are not often offered for sale in the U.S. We are pleased to present a Nippon Ham card of Sadaharu Oh in this auction.
